This sprawling and episodic Uruguayan family drama follows the individual storylines of rebel schoolgirl Ana (Anaclara Ferreyra Palfy) and her separated parents. Her handsome mother, Graciela (Sara Bessio), pays stoical visits to a dying relative, while her father, Rodolfo (Humberto de Vargas), makes pitiful attempts to crawl back into the family bosom. Ana doesn’t much care for her parents’ woes, or school, or anything beyond attracting unsuitable men. Her apathy is infectious. The anecdotal plot is too loose for its undemonstrative characters, while intrusive surges of melancholic indie folk make it all feel like an overlong music video.
